of obama's little sister. i am michelle obama's older brother. any 7-footers out there come give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we have had different upbringings. as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different winning seem, we share a set of values are -- how different we may seem, we share is set of values, values that are as important in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education, and looking out for each other. they are the values of how barack and michele have lived their lives, raise their nieces, and lead this country as president and first lady of the united states. [applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

of san antonio. finally, first lady michelle obama. this of course is not michelle obama as per speech of the national convention. she spoke about her husband four years ago at the democratic convention. her remarks run about 40 minutes. [applause] as you might imagine, for barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother, craig. i can't tell you how much it means to have craig and my mom here tonight. like craig, i can feel my dad looking down on us, just as i've felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life. and at six-foot-six, i've often felt like craig was looking down on me, too, literally. but the truth is, both when we were kids and today, craig wasn't looking down on me, he was watching over me. and he has been there for me every step of the way since that clear day, february, 19 months ago, when, with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change, we joined my husband, barack obama, on the improbable journey that has led us to this moment. but each of us comes here also by way of our own improbab

when the president is on the road. michelle obama told "us weekly" that she lets bo sleep on the bed when obama is not around. >> bill: is that right? >> yep. >> bill: i saw a funny joke the other day. oh, i know. in that bob woodward book. talked about when he first met barack obama was when obama made the democratic response to the gridiron dinner. when he was still in the senate. just elected to the senate. and he said that he had just seen a study that having -- a speech to give. having sex before giving a speech really made you perform a lot better. and he told michelle about this and she said well, did the best you can. you're on your own buddy. anyhow. all right. so chris let's start off with this romney video. because you know, romney has had a -- kind of a rough ride, right? since the convention. maybe a little before the convention. maybe goes back to his pre-olympic tour or when he appointed paul ryan but then there were stories about a lot of rumbling inside the romney campaign and then y

in the key states like-- >>> first lady michelle obama says proteching the right to vote is the nation's most important civil rights issue. first lady told the congressional black caucus they owe it to those who fought for equal rights in the 60s to make sure every voteker freely cast a ballot. her comments came in a push in a dozen states to pass laws requiring voters to show id at the polls. the law would make it harder for the elderly, poor and college students to vote. >>> democrats opened a new campaign office in san francisco yesterday with some help from house minority leader nancy pelosi. >> our modo -- motto is we don'ting ad in, we organize. >> the congress woman rallied campaign workers to get out the vote and re-elect president obama. pelosi predicted california democrats could take back as many as six seats in the house from republicans. >>> some high security special nuclear weapons material stored at lawrence livermore lab has been moved. national nuclear security administration says material includes plutonium and enriched uranium. plans called for most of it to be taken to so
'm not surprised at all because i've gotten to know her. she's fantastic. i also think michelle obama did a very good job. there were a lot of very good jobs, but i think the democrats had more appropriate people to the party than the republicans did. >> steve: there was also bill clinton who gave a great if not very long speech on behalf of the current president. >> he did. >> steve: the day after the president gave his speech, donald, and by all accounts, the president flat in comparison to some of the soaring rhetoric that we've heard in the past, the day after, out pops the jobs number and it just couldn't be worse for the white house.6,000d 368,000 people left the hunt for jobs. for every job created, four people dropped out. the economic news couldn't get worse for the president. >> right. it was a bad report. it was a very bad report, was not covered as badly and as -- the way it should have been, but frankly, i'm listening to made in america or made in the usa, regardless of what he's saying, why isn't he doing something about china? he never attacks china. he's not stopping the problem
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true
for a campaign rally. michelle obama speaking in washington tonight. to find out more information you can go to our c-span website, our campaign 2012 site, you can find out affirmation about those events. our topic for the first 45 minutes, take a look at the topic of medicare. paul ryan of last night talking about it at the aarp. and president obama mentioned it as part of his campaign. we are looking at voters in 55 years or older. we want to get your thoughts this morning specifically to the topic of medicare. more specifically, who do you trust, president obama or mitt romney when it comes to how they handle medicare issues? here is how you can contact us. two lines/two regions. -- two lines divided by two regions. who do you trust on medicare? "washington post" has a right up when it comes to this topic. here is the headline. the article references the white house, or at least those running to the white house when it comes to medicare. paul ryan in front of the aarp, here is a bit from the store that talks about that. that replaced in new orleans. you may have seen a bit of that before
have the democratic convention. spectacular performances by michelle obama and bill clinton. president obama got less stellar reviews, but still a solid speech. the totality of that message, when you had romney, his goal was to make people like him better. obama was to try to address the sense of disappointment many people have. from these initial numbers, they could fade back, it looks like he's done that. at least a little bit. >> john, both of these polls were done after the jobs report on friday? >> reporter: the gallup poll, melissa, is a seven-day tracking poll. so it had results from s days. only friday and saturday in that poll was after the jobs report. the rasmussen poll is a three-day tracking poll. so it's numbers included sunday, saturday and friday. so, yes, the rasmussen poll included the jobs report numbers. >> that is the one that showed obama in the lead. all right, john. thank you very much for that. appreciate it. >>> teachers in chicago are on strike today in the city's first school shutdown in 25 years. mayor rahm emanuel saying he will push to end the strike quic
, michelle obama the first night, president clinton last night and president obama tonight. i think we've got a trifecta. >> yeah. there's been some powerful speeches. it's been said that clinton in 20 seconds made the best sell for the president, better than the white house has been able to make in four years, what do you make of that? >> there's only one bill clinton. did a great job last night. i think he really summed it up is that under democrats america gets jobs. under the republicans we don't do so well, and i think our president tonight will continue the effort to make sure that americans know the facts, and heard a lot of fibs last week at the republican convention and it's time to straighten out the record. >> still though, some read it as bit of a liability, that the white house or the president himself can't make that case. in the end, politics are a singles game, not a doubles game. how much pressure son him to sell himself tonight? >> well, i'm a white sox fan, and so is president obama, and we're in first place. we're going to stay in first place, and i think president obama c
that at all. >> did you hear any of that, tony? >> what about michelle obama? >> i think he just cited elizabeth warren's prime time speech. >> but do you have all the good positions, the democrats do. you care about people, not greedy money. you don't want to cut off health care for old people, you you love old people, you care about educating children. and by definition, i guess republicans are on the opposite side of all those positions which is a lousy -- you staked out all the good positions. >> this is working out great. >> it's difficult to run on that platform. >> it's that kind of rhetoric actually that really makes any kind of reform just impossible, right? because any reform of any existing system means that you are by definition, you know, just -- you want to create pottervilles in america by doing anything. >> it's working, though. >> i don't understand that at all. i mean, look, let's bring it down to kind of a reality level here. reform. okay. certainly i feel very strongly that the financial sector needs reform. and financial regulatory reform which dodd-frank passed un
profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo
